BJCP 10B

BJCP 2015 10B Dunkles Weissbier example
10B - Dunkles Weissbier

 

Overall Impression

A moderately dark German wheat beer with a distinctive banana-and-clove yeast character, supported by a toasted bread or caramel malt flavor. Highly carbonated and refreshing, with a creamy, fluffy texture and light finish that encourages drinking.

Comments

The presence of Munich and/or Vienna-type barley malts gives this style a deep, rich barley malt character not found in a weissbier. Often known as dunkelweizen, particularly in the United States.

Commercial Examples
